The $100K Challenge is Live!

And it’s time To Give More Life.

We’ve got 31 days, October 1-31, to raise $100,000 to support women battling breast cancer.

The $100K Challenge is our annual giving campaign where you get to partner with us and support a woman diagnosed with breast cancer.

Look, we’re not going to try to impress you with fancy words. Of course, our goal is to compel you to donate. But we want to share real stories of real women battling breast cancer who need you.

What we REALLY do!

You’ve been diagnosed with breast cancer, now what? No worries, Carrie’s TOUCH can help!

On the surface, Carrie’s TOUCH appears to be “just” a support group for African-American women in Sacramento, California.

But, we’re much more than “just” a support group. We are a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit breast cancer organization, and what we really do is enhance your stream of consciousness around breast cancer. 

Our Mission

  • To break the silence that adversely impacts the African American community with regard to breast cancer in order to significantly increase the number of survivors.
  • To improve the quality of life by fighting for those that cannot, will not, or do not know how to fight for themselves.
  • To ensure that those living with breast cancer live life to the fullest!

Our Vision

  • To improve the quality of life for African Americans by empowering them to make informed choices about their breast cancer treatment.
  • To change the way African Americans approach health issues by getting in TOUCH with the community through advocacy, awareness, education, research and support.

Our History

Studies have shown that though African American women do not have the highest diagnosis of breast cancer incidence, they do have the highest death rate than any other race of women. Upon learning of this statistic, Rev. Tammie, a then recently diagnosed breast cancer patient, took action. Rev. Tammie was a student at St. Mary’s College, Moraga, California and was required to manage a community project as part of her graduation requirement. She decided to spread the word that early detection saves lives. She targeted the African American faith-based community and designed an informative hand fan that appealed to her audience. She then launched a campaign to distribute the fans in seven Sacramento Valley churches.
